My daughter is very sad that her best friend since pre-school, (they are now 13) is not allowed to spend as much time with her at our house, their house or doing outside activities. The families have been close but things shifted and there is no real explanation. The friends Mom has become more protective in general and seems somewhat suspicious. These are really good girls who are very responsible, nice and they are not troubled teens they do want independence and go to a very small school so I support within reason their need to be allowed to go out and do things on their own. My daughter's friend Mom thinks my daughter will leave her friend behind if a certain boy shows up but that really is not the case- my daughter knows that friends come first and to look out for each other. How do we get beyond this? My daughter is afraid that her friends Mom is trying to put an end to their friendship and she is heartbroken.
